Job Description

Brilliant job vacancy (10 month contract -starting Feb 2018) with a highly regarded membership association for a B2B Event Coordinator with good conference experience!

THE COMPANY

Highly regarded educational membership association based in central London. Fun & friendly team - very work-life balance and team orientated and all have a good sense of humour and enjoy their work as well as working hard to put on great events for their members!

THE ROLE

Joining at a very busy time, this 10 month maternity cover fixed term contract (starting February 2018) will see you organizing and delivering a range of UK based 2-3 day residential conferences that are usually held at top 5* hotels in the major UK cities. The conference based events are sponsored and include an exhibition area and incorporate a full social programme of welcome drinks reception, evening functions and a gala dinner as well as the business and knowledge transfer elements such as key notes, workshops, seminars & panel discussions. The basic event planning is all in place (dates, venues and suppliers confirmed) and the events run to a similar format each year so this role needs a super organised event coordinator to come in, hit the ground running and take the events through to the final stages of planning and then on to full delivery.

NB: The role will involve some travel within the UK and overnight stays for which TOIL will be offered.

YOU

You’ll be a fun and outgoing events coordinator / events executive / events administrator with circa 2-3 years events experience (B2B conferences & exhibitions) ideally gained from working for a membership association or within / across the education or professional development sectors.

You’ll already have good event management knowledge and skills along with some experience of working with sponsors, partners, exhibitors & advertisers as well as with a range of internal & external stakeholders, venues, suppliers and contractors. You’ll need strong event marketing & promotion and social media skills and if you have good UK venue knowledge that would be very advantageous. A bit of reactive / very warm sponsorship and exhibitor sales experience would also be useful.

If you have a proven track record within B2B conferences & events, enjoy the education & teaching sector and are looking for a new and exciting long term contract with a highly regarded organisation to start 2018 then this could be a brilliant position to secure!
